Claude Peteet Mariculture Center/Marine Resources Division

The Claude Peteet Mariculture Center has been utilized for many activities since its construction in 1973, including basic and applied research into the intricacies of estuarine and marine ecology. Recently, the station has been used as a recovery tool, the production site for thousands of Florida pompano, speckled seatrout, and southern flounder for annual restocking of depleted coastal fisheries. The center conducts studies and research that enhance our understanding of the life history of red snapper, various finfish and shrimp.
